So where did the punk go dammit? The punk ninja’d. I’vebeen M.I.A. from social media for a month.
I’ve sunk into the mire of Burner culture, wearing tiger print robes, champagne colored heels, and drooling over sparkly pants. Don’t worry the Steampunk is still alive inside of me. The stories are still marinating in my brain-box, and I swear I WILL finish my short story before the New Year.
In all seriousness, my personal life has stolen away my time from you fair readers. When I say personal life, I don’t mean something dramatic and sad. Just the hum-drum of moving, endless parties (I’m not kidding) and multiple back-to-back trips to the doctor for…hold on…gotta think to get it straight…
First trip: Poison Ivy (blargh!)
Second trip: Vile-Illness-That-They-Were-Unable-to-Classify-But-Gave-Me-Lots-Of-AntiBiotics
Third trip: Icky Icky bronchitis
Fair readers I strongly urge you to keep your immune system healthy…unlike mine… I blame the Burner plague…I heard it was catching quite badly in the North Texas region. I hope it’s now gone.
As for endless parties, this is a side-effect of becoming further engrossed in the Burner community. I love it.
For all the Steampunks it is the same way. Once you’ve found an active community it seems as though there is something going on almost every weekend and a lot of the time, weekdays.
I enjoy all the social happenings, especially in the Fall and Winter, but the downside is that it cuts into my active writing hours.
Shame on me for having fun! Shame!
